Emotional spousal abuse occurs when one spouse uses intimidation to control, degrade, and punish the other and cause the victim to be fearful and self-doubting. Acts of emotional spousal abuse include isolating the spouse from family and friends, forbidding any independent activities, and making threats.
If you are a victim of spousal abuse, one way to break free is to consult with a Tigard lawyer who handles these cases. The lawyer can petition the court for a restraining order to prevent contact with the abuser, arrange a legal separation or divorce, and help you document the emotional abuse to support your case.
